Meanwhile the expresident who will never go away and his law breaking sidekick Holder work 24/7 to defeat America.

"Titled “All On The Line,” the campaign won’t be focused solely on gerrymandered congressional districts. It will also tackle other issues high on Obama’s agenda, including expanding voting rights, reducing gun violence and protecting the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare."

What a lovely tribute James. You really made your mother's personality come alive for the reader, which is a gift.

I am also glad, in this sad time for you, that you have the visual of your mother smiling at the sunlight as a last memory.

Just read your Pieces Clarice. It was spot on.

Trump tweet:

Very productive talks yesterday with China on Trade. Will continue today! I will be leaving for Hanoi, Vietnam, early tomorrow for a Summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, where we both expect a continuation of the progress made at first Summit in Singapore. Denuclearization?

Trump tweet:

HOLD THE DATE! We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!

BREAKING: Venezuelan opposition figure Freddy Superlano was poisoned during a breakfast in Colombia and is currently seriously ill, his assistant has died due to the poisoning.

JamesD,

What a wonderful Mom you had. I think I.Stern is the leader in polymer's for stents, IIRC.

henry

Trump tweet:

President Xi of China has been very helpful in his support of my meeting with Kim Jong Un. The last thing China wants are large scale nuclear weapons right next door. Sanctions placed on the border by China and Russia have been very helpful. Great relationship with Chairman Kim!

Jack is Back!

Great Pieces, as usual, Clarice, never disappointed.

Trump should invite the Covington Catholic school boys for that July 4th at the Lincoln Memorial.

JiB, I had no idea about that. When she worked there, their business was processing and selling precious metals to jewelry companies (and other users - they sold the gold that made the olympic gold medals in 1980 or 1984, I forget which).

I wish she hadn't retired before i met my wife, because she was always able to get fine jewelry at wholesale cost due to her relationships with all the companies she sold to.

One other odd little thing I remember - my father also worked there for a while, on their factory floor (there were four floors, and the factory area was on the ground level, while Mom worked on the 3rd floor), and he and all the workers there had to go through a metal detector every time they entered or exited, and they were all given these special belts with plastic buckles to wear to work so that wouldn't set off the detectors.

Thanks for sharing that, James D. A life well lived.

Well, Hillary and the Dems have given him a media-approved roadmap for hot to act, haven't they?

One of those things you will never see again,IMO!

I wonder if jimmyk is a member. From a FB friend:

By Harry Lewis:
Last night, I was invited to a secret meeting of a cell of young Republicans in the sub-basement of a bar in Manhattan. About fifty people were in attendance. The leader explained that he is in a creative industry in New York where expressing his political affiliation or his support for President Trump would lead to the instantaneous destruction of his career. Hence the organization of secret underground GOP cells all over Manhattan. I find the implications of their need to organize themselves in this way terrifying for our country. New York Democrats must feel proud of the atmosphere they have created in their stronghold. Perhaps the GOP will reciprocate in GOP strongholds?

Chairman Kim realizes, perhaps better than anyone else, that without nuclear weapons, his country could fast become one of the great economic powers anywhere in the World. Because of its location and people (and him), it has more potential for rapid growth than any other nation!

JamesD,

The obit said I.Stern, when according to your 8:15 it should have said H.Stern. I'd sue the NYTimes for all they got:)

JiB, unfortunately I don't think I qualify as "young" any more. But glad to know these groups are out there.

Along the same line...
My daughter told me a coworker added her to a private chat group of conservatives. She was surprised at WHO was in it & how MANY were in it.
So that is here in Northern Virginia at a company that is mostly young people (20s, early 30s).
Lots of humor & mocking of leftist ideas. Sort of an overall 'leftists are crazy' tone to the bit I saw.

JiB, it's definitely I Stern, although they were sold several times since then. They became Stern Metals, then Stern-Leach, then something else and I have no idea who owns them now.

OTD William B. Travis sent his famous letter from the Alamo. It etched in history the legacy of Texans willing to die for independence. May we never lose hunger for the freedom for which Texas stands. God Bless Texas. #VictoryOrDeath #txlege pic.twitter.com/SyUQhGAAO3

Acting DefSec Shanahan and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Dunford on a secret trip to the border near El Paso today. Unclear reason for secrecy usually reserved for visits to Kabul or Baghdad.
==========================
Well, it could be because there are drug cartels and terrorists down there, but no emergency needed, you know.

MissM's 8:53 is fascinating.

"And it’s unclear whether the 29-year-old lawmaker, who represents the Bronx and Queens, actually still lives in the Parkchester neighborhood that has been so closely tied to her rise ... Ocasio-Cortez has used her deceased father’s Bronx condo on her voter registration since 2012, and even posed in the one-bedroom Bronx flat for celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz in a Vogue magazine profile after her stunning November election. But The Post could find little indication she continues to live there."

Not only that, but the attitude of AOC and staff: excuses, refusal to talk, outright lies...indicate an attitude of enmity and being at war with people who are asking pretty simple questions like "where do you live"? A question that seems pretty legit.
